I see that happen all the time because PackageKit (the backend to GNOME Software) crashes all the time.

Probably a program (gui installer?) crashed when manipulating the rpm database leaving those locks (used for giving exclusive access to the database) around. Check the journal and see if you can find out what really happened.

coredumpctl (command line toolorABRT` ("Automated bug reporting tool") may help finding the crashes and reporting them or at least getting more details.
